Power Transformers

Scrappys buys transformers for scrapping.

Many of the large industrial power transformers, fault limiters and substations are full of vital metals, alloys, aluminium and other steel which are not only recyclable, but highly valuable.

A transformer is a passive electrical device that transfers electrical energy from one electrical circuit to another, or multiple circuits. Transformers are most commonly used for increasing low AC voltages at high current (a step-up transformer) or decreasing high AC voltages at low current (a step-down transformer) in electric power applications, and for coupling the stages of signal processing circuits.

Laminated steel cores are transformers for use at power or audio frequencies typically have cores made of high permeability silicon steel. They make toroidal transformers from a long strip of silicon steel or permalloy wound into a coil, powdered iron, or ferrite. Transformers for use at power or audio frequencies typically have cores made of high permeability silicon steel.

We use transformers for power in the generation, transmission, distribution, mining, oil & gas, rail, renewable, and industrial sectors. Solid core transformers are used in radio transmission but typically made from ceramic.
